How to Earn Money on your Smartphone
Technology has taken force over modern society in every respect; from manufacturing to office businesses, how we get there and even how we spend our free time, it’s hard to image what life would be like in this day and age without the global connectivity offered to us by the internet, and all the gadgets and hardware we use to access it.
Over the course of the past decade, probably the most notable advance in technology has come through the rise of the smartphone. Initially an impressive, high end resource reserved for those at the top of the commercial ladder, smartphones have now become the norm, with previous mobile phone models becoming all but extinct. The first smartphone is believed to have come into existence in 1992, but it was 10 years later that the more popular Blackberry smartphones hit the market in 2002, and then a further 5 years later that this technology really hit the headlines with the release of Apple’s first iPhone in 2007.
Smartphones are no longer reserved for the elite, most adults in the developed world now own a smartphone, along with the vast majority of teenagers and even some children. Apple has continuously strived to improve its product since the original iPhone was released, and to date has created 18 different versions of the smartphone. Whilst these products remain industry leaders, Apple now faces stiff competition from Android, another technology giant owned by Google, and offering innumerable models of smartphone, as well as tablet computers and a range of other products.
The rise of smartphones has worked twofold: on the one hand, their ability to carry out multiple tasks on one pocket sized device has attracted users and made the smartphone a highly desirable product. At the same time, the current generation’s desire to be able to handle numerous tasks using just one device has led developers to improve their product offering to meet this gap in the market. We now expect to be able to access everything and anything from our mobile devices, from a standard internet browser to applications that range from mobile banking to gaming.
Since we rely so heavily on our smartphones for everything from business to leisure time, paid surveys platform Crowdology has come up with a way for users to earn a little extra cash from the convenience of their smartphones. We often like to stare at our screen to pass some free time, so you can now earn money for doing so by reviewing products and services for a variety of brands.
There’s no doubt that, in order to stay ahead of the game, technology providers are going to have to improve their product offering as users expect to be able to carry out increasingly more functions on their smartphones, and look to them more and more for entertainment during spare or dull moments.
